But you can guarantee dealers will push that it be changed at a 60-90K "service".

I know I don't buy "lifetime" when it comes to fluids/lubes. Never have since the "lifetime ATF" craze kicked in in the early 2000's with some makes/models.

I'm not sure where the level check, drain and/or fill plugs are on this CVT, but they're likely not too convenient. I know I've personally dealt with some doozies. ie; The GM 4L30E and GM 4T45E. Neither have a dipstick. Only two low mounted plugs for checking level and filling/draining.
